Dignity Health Central Coast hospitals, which includes Marian Regional Medical Center (MRMC), Arroyo Grande Community Hospital (AGCH) and French Hospital Medical Center (FHMC), announced they have awarded $351,950 in funding to four unique community nonprofit partnerships in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties. This year’s grants also included funding to eight single non-for-profit organizations facing negative impacts due to the coronavirus pandemic. Today, representatives from each organization were invited to a virtual award ceremony to acknowledge their service in providing critical health and human services to local residents.
Grants are awarded through a Community Grants Program created by the Dignity Health parent company, CommonSpirit Health. The intent of the annual community grant program is to help non-profit organizations with an interest in building healthier communities by improving health and living conditions.
